I have an appointment booked with the solicitor to get a change of name, however my problem is that I have yet to decide upon a name.
My birth name was very posh, I was named after two grandparents with exceedingly British names and I will be keeping my initials the same (K.E.M). Trying to keep the middle name as posh as my birth middle name I think I will be going for Eugene.
However, I have more of a problem with the first. There is nothing that is posh that can be shortened to Kaye. My parents made a big deal about both my sister’s and my name having a posh long version and a shortened nickname, which makes sense.
The options so far are:
- Kayden – sounds a bit chavy and is very masculine (not something I am overly keen on) and is a very modern name, it wasn’t popular when I was a baby.
- Kaye – short and not posh but it is my name
- Kaelan – gender neutral which is good but it doesn’t feel like me, but then neither does Kayden or my birth name.
Maybe I should just keep it to Kaye and then if in the future I feel that not having a posher name is holding me back in life I could change it again.
I just wish I had someone to talk to who knew more about this kind of thing.
